    Cost is $540, but it kicks the snot out of all the other hp's you listed.

    If thos eoptiosn are all you have to go by, then I would use the first one.
  3. Can you use a screwdriver on a Do it Yourself?

    Sorry, forgot you need a monitor as well.
    I failed..... :cry:
  4. my room is small i only got 12ft by 13ft to deal with
  5. and i got only $500 PERIOD
  6. last option is best of three in my opinion...

    ...as for its use with FRAPS: it is best to have an entire HDD dedicated to it for its insane write speed/space requirements (lack of compression). I have seen 2 hours of 1080p 60 fps video take over 100 GB of space.
  7. i would say first one... slightly differences but first one 4 sure
  8. Second option is definitely best for overall and games.
  9. Above, we have opinions for all three choices. Unless one or more are on sale, the one that is most expensive is probably the most powerful.
  10. My choice is second is the more helpful to me.
  11. If you choose the second one, you can get more power out of it due to the quad core, and the quad core phenoms overclock really well. Its a great deal.
  12. i think hp lock there bios tho and if i would push it to 2.66GHz or so id be scared that it would over heat plus what do i use to over clock it...AMD overdrive?
  13. i also use handbreak to conpress a file from 3.42GB to 800MB or so and convert it into MP4
  14. i know the 6370m can get 40fps in minecraft EASILY i wont do much gaming so i need CPU power for encoding
